Bartow County Water Department - Staff
The Bartow County Water Department was originally established in September 1969 under the leadership of Superintendent Mr. Jerry Rowland and initially provided residential water service to the suburbs immediately surrounding Cartersville, the county seat of Bartow County. System resources during our early operating phases consisted entirely of water purchased from the City of Cartersville Water System that had been withdrawn directly from Lake Allatoona. Construction efforts commenced on our sewer system in the early 1970's near the Cass-White Road/Interstate-75 Interchange as demand generated from the establishment of numerous commercial enterprises within that area necessitated the implementation of wastewater infrastructure. Our water and sewer systems have expanded rapidly over the following decades as a result of steady population growth along with incremental residential, commercial and industrial development has occurred across Bartow County. Presently, the Bartow County Water Department provides water and/or sewer service to over 22,000 Service Connections through a network of approximately 930 miles of Water Lines, 211 miles of Sewer Lines, 48 Water and Sewer Pumping/Booster Stations, 15 Water Reservoirs and 2 Wastewater Treatment Plants with an average daily water consumption of 6.2 M.G.D. (Million Gallons Per Day), equivalent to approximately 2.26 Billion Gallons Per Year.
